Arcum was completely stunned Greave was supposed to be dead. She was shot during a job and now she is standing right in front of him wearing her modern new garb as if nothing happened.

 "Arcum, are you happy to see me after all this time?"  Greave asked as she came forward and ripped off her scarf and let it gracefully land on the floor behind her. Arcum could hear his heart beat into his throat how could she survived a devastating hit and then walk away almost unhurt? As he coins feel flashbacks come back from that night.

 The alarm sounded, making everyone jump out of their skin. Arcum turns around to see guards and in front of him Shiv and Greave looking vary furious at him.

 He had nowhere to run, dumb pressure pad. He always got tricked by them and now he had done it and about to get everyone killed including him.

 "Get ready." Greave said as he could hear mettle daggers come out of their holsters even Arcum got out his pen dagger. He felt his training kick in as he dug his pen and made quick work and not caring about cleanliness as he can hear bullets in the air from the guards. "Everyone ok?" he called out looking at each of his comrades. He was fine other than a gash on his arm but Greave was on the Floor holding her side, she huffed in pain as she tried to stand but would wind up on one knee and bleeding horribly with her blood gushing everywhere from her side. Arcum felt squeamish from the look of the opened wound. "Greave stop before you leave something." Shiv said trying to keep Greave focused. Her outfit was shot and she needed help with Shiv just standing there looking as flustered as him.

"Get the job done Arcum!" Shiv ordered and Arcum froze. He never had a predicament like this. He looked at Greave and the horror of her pain. She looked scared but he would be the exact way if he was in Greave's position.

 "Arcum!" he heard Shiv voice surprisingly and completely calm

 "But!" Arcum yelled knowing that he can't leave a family member behind and now Shiv wants him to leave them at least it is better than nothing.

 "Go! Finish the job." Shiv yelled and Arcum obeyed thinking Greave Was in good hands. But before he left he looked back and saw Shiv whisper something in Greave's ear but that was all he saw before he left them.

 Arcum returned to the hideout and huddled in the corner hoping that no one would see him in this state. All he could do was wait till Shiv returned with her outfit almost As bad as Greave's but without the tears.

 "What happened?" was all that Arcum could squeeze out of his tears. Shiv looked at him and slapped him harshly on his cheek to where he hit his head on the rough edging on the wall and he could feel it cut deeply into him and the cool, sticky, blood leak from the temple. He slowly turned his head since he started to feel nauseous but Shiv helped him look her in the eyes. Those cold and icy eyes felt like daggers into Arcum's soul but he still looked right at them knowing that he must show respect since Shiv demanded respect for some reason since she has never acted this way to Arcum. She had no reason to act like this till now, Arcum suddenly knew that the impossible must had happened to her before Shiv could say a word.

 "Greave left us. She didn't make it the creed found her for the last time." she said in a soft tone." and she said that I get the family business since she has absolutely no family members," Arcum immediately felt horrified at the way she was acting.

 "But I thought she had A...." Arcum slipped up. He only had a hunch at the time that Greave had a sister but he must had sparked an interest since Shiv's eyes change from overpowering to a flash of passion and opportunity for something. "A...Sibling? Care to tell me about this.... Sibling Arcum."

"I...I don't know much. I just heard it through the grapevine." Arcum shuttered and Shiv's eyes narrowed.

 "Really? Nothing?" Shiv questioned and then threw him again into the wall jarring him to a concussed state where the images started to become blobs and outlines. Then she lifted his head to look at her showing her power over him. "Just remember, I'm now head of the family and also the creed always finds us. Even the hidden." she said and walked away leaving her heals sound like stone that was braking by the earthquake that she left in her wake. But all of a sudden she paused and turned towards him. "Oh and Arcum, never show weakness."
